SCOTCH-IRISH FAMILY.



^






SBBg^^EggepEi^a^igBii^By;






James Millikin was born in Scotland and came to America with his parents
when a small boy before the Revolutionary war. He was the youngest of
the family, and we do not know that he had more than three brothers and
one sister, viz. : William, John, Samuel and Mary, of whom hereafter.

We do not know anything about the father of this family. Their mother
was a very intellectual woman, and much devoted to the Presbyterian church.
Everyone loved and honored her. At the time of her death in 1808, she
made her home with James Millikin at Mt. Pleasant, Penn.

The family located first on the Brandywine, near where Washington
crossed with his army in Chester Co.,* Penn., and remained there for a num-
ber of years ; but being apprised of danger from the Indians they buried
their valuables, vacated their home temporarily, and fled to other parts for
safety. When this warning came, the mother was reading her bible. She
removed her spectacles and placed them between the pages of the sacred
volume, and this treasure, though now fragile and discolored by age, is still
in possession of the family. When they returned they found their property
— with the exception of what was concealed — destroyed and they removed
to Westmoreland Co., Penn., where James Millikin secured a grant of land.

From the state land office at Harrisburg, Pa., the following was pro-
cured :

"April 12, 1786, to James Millikin 115 acres in Pitt Township, West-
moreland County, Pennsylvania, called 'James' Delight,' surveyed in per-
suance of an application entered 13th June, 1769, by Robert Waugh, who
dying intestate, his administrator by virtue of the orders of the Orphan's
C'ourt, by deed dated the 9th of February, 1773, conveyed the said land
to James Millikin for whom a warrant of acceptance was issued nth Apr.
instant. Names of owners of adjoining lands, James Fleming, Mr. Smith
and Simon Girty."

James Millikin married Mary LocKARDf who was b. in Ireland in 1762.
She had been m. to John Thackett, and in 1780, they came to America.
Their two children d. when crossing the ocean, and three months later the
husband d. Nine years afterwards she became Mrs. Millikin. By this
union there were five children whose names will appear. The death of the
father, which occurred in 1808, was caused by a fall from the high porch
